UNICEF and major water and housing equipment maker Lixil Corp. announced on Thursday that they forged a partnership to address sanitation problems that put hundreds of children in danger every day.

A joint agreement entitled “Make a splash! Toilets for Everyone!” aims to achieve one of the sustainable development goals set by the United Nations, to secure by 2030 “access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all, and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women, girls, and those in vulnerable situations.”
